FT. LAUDERDALE, FL (PRWEB) March 4, 2005
Giuliani Partners LLC has partnered with SeaSecure LLC, a global leader in maritime and energy security and counterterrorism consulting, to provide objective security and strategic consulting services to Broadwater Energy LLC for its proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on Long Island Sound.
Broadwater, a partnership between TransCanada Corporation and Shell US Gas & Power Company, has initiated public and regulatory review of a proposed offshore LNG Floating Storage and Regasification Unit in New York waters on Long Island Sound. If approved, the facility would be located nine miles offshore of Long Island and would receive overseas deliveries of LNG to supply New York and Connecticut with additional energy.
Giuliani Partners, assisted by SeaSecure, has completed a preliminary security assessment that indicates that, given a set of critical security assumptions, the proposed facility can be operated safely and securely. Giuliani Partners and SeaSecure have been working on this project since late 2004 and will continue to provide security consulting services on an ongoing basis to help enhance the security of the planned facility.
"This facility will provide an important additional energy supply to the region, with an emphasis on security,Â said Rudolph W. Giuliani. ÂGiuliani Partners is pleased to be working with the SeaSecure team, which has a long and successful track record in maritime security and counterterrorism.Â
Kim E. Petersen, SeaSecure's President, said, ÂAll of us at SeaSecure take pride in teaming with Giuliani Partners for this important project, given their exceptional background in security, public safety, and emergency planning.Â
